Post Clerkship Salary/Bonus Negotiations

Thought I would see if people were having any luck asking for more $ following their clerkships. I didn't see this thread anywhere. With Quinn at 100K bonus for two years as a federal clerk and the rest of the market at 70, I thought there may be more firms willing to bump 30k, or other interesting scenarios.

Is Quinn really paying 100K for two clerkships? I know Susman does, but I haven't seen anything about that for Quinn.

I'm about to finish my 1 year, 9 month clerkship on the federal district court. I'm joining a satellite office of a V20 firm. Their policy is 50k for a single clerkship, or 70k for two clerkships/one two-year clerkship. Because I was short of two years, they were being a little cagey about the size of my bonus. I sent an email to the HR guy, said I wanted 70k and needed an answer soon. They gave it to me.
